That's a title isn't it ?

 

October 9th at I did a sketch of the nice croissant of Venus with some details in the Venus clouds.

That was during the daylight (17:30 Local time).  Here's the image posted in Alpo-J

As stated by Stanislas-Jean, the AL was quite difficult to see but detected, a little bit more out of the limb near the North pole than close to the South one and less visible than last year.

Because of a nice eyepiece view I had with clouds (clouds from Earth and on Venus), I wanted to make some souvenir watercolors,

Here's one of my results:

To explain the "shower" story (or if you want to know how to make this type of watercolor), just click on the YouTube link:

So sorry but if you click, you will see my private shower lol.gif.

 

Clear sky to you all
